The Child Divinity
The Child Divinity
Although Christianity every year remembers abundantly
the birth of the Child at Christmas time,
the Child Divinity is not really a natural part
of Christianity as it seems to be.
The New Testament only gives in two places
some short accounts on the Birth,
with a lot of unusual elements,
like shepherds, the angles choir,
the cave, the star above the cave,
the three wise men coming to bring gifts,
the hostile king trying to kill the Child.
And most of all the pregnancy of two childs
at the same time, both miraculously conceived,
one child in high age,
and the other child conceived by a virgin.
Many authors are referring to the Child accounts
as if the stories of the Birth and the Virgin conception
are everywhere and plenty.
But this is not correct.
Of all the books available, the Nag Hammadi,
the Pistis Sophia, the gospels of the New Testament
the Aprocyphal writings it is clear that
writings about the Birth are scarce.
It is clear, that neither the original writings of Christianity,
written long before the New Testament,
nor the later writings of the New Testament
were much involved in giving accounts of the Birth.
Also the Essenes did not write much about the Child.
Next to the Male Divinity, symbolized by the Sun,
was recognized the Female Divinity,
symbolized in the Moon.
We see Mary standing on the Moon in many churches.
In the same way we find in ancient religion
the Child Divinity, sitting on the lap of the Mother.
In many Christian households we find
the statue or a picture of the Mother of God (Neter Mut)
with the Child on her lap.
This statue is part of religion since thousands of years.
On the temple of Luxor, part of the cross procession road
which I explained on another webpage in Home2b.nl,
we find a huge carved wall relief with
the Annunciation of the conceiving of the Mother,
the conception of the Child,
the Birth and Adoration of the Child,
and the presenting of gifts by three wise men.
This is a relief on the wall from about the same time and
the same place where I am positioning
This brings forward the triade of
the Amen of our prayers,
the Mut (Neter Mut) who is the Mother,
the Child sitting on Her lap.
Many authors are pointing to the triade
Asar (Osiris) - Ast (Isis) - Heru-p-khart (Horus the Child)
in which Ast (Isis) is interchangable
Other religions honoring the Child Divinity
Many authors point to the fact that
also in the Sumerian-Babylonian religion
the Mother with Child was a much honored statue
and in India the Mother Devaki and the Child Krishna
are very much honored.
The two holy books of "the Game of Krishna"
are about the childhood of Krishna.
I don't know who was first and
whether there is any importance in being first
or being older in world history.
The important point is the direct line
of ancient Egyptian religion
to the early Christian beliefs.
We have to keep in mind that
the original Christian churches were mystery churches.
This means that also the knowledge as it is written down
in the known writings, could very well influenced
by this division of knowledge into rankings.
Even in historical times in Western Europe
the believers were divided in several rankings,
of which each could enter
their own separated part of the cathedral.
Believers were introduces to new truths
when it was their time to know more of Divinity.
Surely the knowledge of the Father-Mother-Child Divinity
was part of these separated portions of truth.
Developing the new spirituality
In developing rituals for the Moon cycle of the Earth,
listening to the natural rhythm and energy of our planet,
and rituals for the rhythm of the Sun,
we also have to keep in mind, that our religion
is very much based on the three sides of Divinity.
The Child will be the One who is calling
you and us back into life through
the resurrection into the new life.
The Child will become the adult Son.
In a way the Child Divinity has a threefold way:
the Birth with miracles encircled and
the little Child sitting on the lap of Mut;
the Life on Earth with the message of Peace and Forgiveness;
the Death of the Child.
To give the Child Divinity His place in
the development of the new spirituality
will be a big challenge.
More research is necessary on this subject.
This webpage will have several versions
in the near future.
